PHOTO REPORT: Disney Springs 12/22/20 (Gideon’s Bakehouse Construction Walls Down, New Wondermade Marshmallows Booth, Upgraded Virtual Queue System at World of Disney, Walt Disney Funko Pops, and More)
Hello lovely readers from a fun day at Disney Springs! We don’t get to spend as much time here as we used to, and so we were excited to see what was new and what we would find to show you. Let’s get started!
On our way in, we spotted a sign outside of Amorette’s Patisserie showing off the beautiful treats available for a limited time for the holiday season. We can’t wait to try them!
We stopped by Gideon’s Bakehouse and found the construction walls removed and employees outside!
The building looks amazing, and the themed window displays are so beautiful. The Cast Members outside said that they would be open tomorrow. We will of course be back to show you all the fun new treats!
A new booth has opened in Disney Springs, Wondermade. Purveyors of gourmet marshmallows, we think some of these look amazing! For more pictures and information, check out our article here.
When we went to check out World of Disney, there was quite a line to go inside. We arrived later in the day than usual, and there was a 30-45 minute wait to enter the store around midday.
They also had a Virtual Queue option for guests who wanted to continue shopping and enjoying the Springs while waiting to enter World of Disney. To enter the Virtual Queue you now scan this QR code and enter your own information on your own device. It also allows you to leave the queue should you desire to. We had 21 people ahead of us, and waited about 15 minutes.
Once inside, we found some new merchandise, including this youth shirt featuring a bright blue Mickey Mouse for $24.99.
We also found this youth tank top featuring the phrase “Navigate The Future … In Tomorrowland” across the front and back for $24.99.
2021 merchandise is still arriving in the parks. We found this license plate frame at World of Disney for $12.99.
Next, we headed to Days of Christmas, where we found some rearranging of merchandise had been done. The Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise had been relocated to the front of the store next to this year’s Christmas merchandise.
In the back room where the Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise had been, 2021 merchandise has taken over.
The other half of the room is Mickey and friends merchandise.
We also found a new ornament there, this Disney Vacation Club “Home For The Holidays” ornament for $19.99.
We also found this new Nightmare Before Christmas pin traders starter set for $32.99.
We went next door to the Spice & Tea Exchange and found the Tea Bar open.
The Tea Bar is currently open 10am – 10pm, which his the same hours as the store itself.
A new sign on the front of the bar shows the sizes and prices of the teas available. We sampled some while we were there and they’re delicious!
At Art of Disney, the very popular 65th Anniversary Disneyland Funko Pop was available. We were excited to see this available again!
We found some fun vintage style knitted classic Mickey and friends sweater at Disney Style. For more pictures and information, check out our article here.
